Default nose climbing...

thats what I am calling it. I have a Hobby Zone "Super Cub" but, when it flys, it nose wants to climb into a stall. I have check and recheck the trims and everything else I can think of. Anyone else flying this bird have any ideas or know what Ican do, or what I am NOT doing HAHA.

Your CG should be around 3/4 the way forward on the wing, check it out , if it's only 1/2 or center the wing its way nose heavy, forward of 3/4's is way tail heavy, your CG shoud be 3/4 or less (not much) As much as I HATE add'in weight's to a plane sometimes you just gotta, Clay, lead, big screw >( be carefull not to damage anything)<`Doe's the moter cowl'in come off? good place for weight up there, post some pix's with the wing off and a close up of the cowl if it don't seem to come off, the PFD manuel was'nt much for detail, your bub, scoooper PS check this old thread out as it's got lots of stuff for you, AND TURN OFF THE*&^%$%^ACT ( anti crash stuff )

Robert,

I assume that you are a first time flyer. You don't indicate under what conditions the plane tries to nose up. The SuperCub is designed to climb at full throttle. When the plane is flying at 50% throttle, the plane should be flying level. If it still trying to climb at 50% throttle, try adjusting the trim tab forward. If this solves the problem, when you land check out how the elevator is positioned (with the transmitter still turned on and the battery still connected). Then set the trim tab to the center position and adjust the linkage to bring the elevator to the same position that you had when you landed. Fly again and check your set-up. Repeat until the plane flies level at 50% throttle. Its not unusual for a plane to need the elevator to be slightly down to achieve level flight.

Leo is correct. My SC will fly nose up under 3/4 to full throttle. At half throttle it flies level when properly trimmed.
